Peterson has been on death row for more than 15 years for killing his wife Lacy and their unborn son.
TIMELINE: How the Laci Peterson case unfolded
The state Supreme Court previously threw out his death sentence. That's because jurors who personally disagreed with the death penalty, but were willing to impose it, were improperly dismissed.
The re-sentencing hearing will take place on Dec. 8 at the Hall of Justice in Redwood City.
